-- there are so many things that are on the brink of taking us on the disaster not the least of them being the possibility of cyber warfare. that's something that television news ought to be covering big time right now. i am tremendously concerned by the fact that the american public and its military have never been as far apart as they are right now. a terrific job of covering everyone in uniform and hero. we did a terrific job of welcoming them at airports saying thank you for your service. we know nothing about what's going on in the military and for what's more, the military operations these days are being launched on the basis of drone attacks, cia operatives, special operations forces out in the field, and all of that backed by civilian employees, civilian contractors, and we know next to nothing that is brought by these. islamic because the reporting is not being done? >> it's because we found that keeping the american public won't stand for a draft and the professional military wasn't enough to fight all over the world else we are now -- we've been focused on afghanistan we actuall
cellular spectrum, which the fcc had given us, or should we let the others have it and mckenzie productive as of the year 2000, there would be 1 million users with cellular telephones. except it was off by 99 million. there were actually about 100 million cellular subscribers in the year 2000. that fundamentally changed the world. they basically gave up the ghost by letting go of cellular. long long-distance has ceased to be a separate business. there are always people arguing in washington. but if you actually look, the latest government statistics are 32% of the people don't even have landline telephones anymore. they use cell phones. the competition out there, in terms of the internet. 4-g is coming in. i would be willing to predict that in 10 or 15 years, the majority of youth on the internet will be over mobile phones and cell phones throughout the world. >> host: if you expand that to wireless devices so you don't limit it to cell phones -- >> guest: that's what i mean. tablets, you name it, exactly. >> host: i think the really important point about your question is that the mindset
that the employer can use. now, i grant this isn't just a skills training program, but you've got to know how to write, to speak, to think. and i think a lot of our problem is that we graduate many students that don't necessarily do that well. and if the humanity majors, and they do not do that especially well, then they have got trouble. so, and they can't necessarily prove they do those things will. earlier someone said, i think you, jim, talked about the need for computer skills. my guess is that if the humanities majors, major really helped some sort of certification, that showed certain skills. i think that we haven't fully grappled with how to deal with our desire, our feeling that we need to have the humanities as a critical part of the university, we need to have the numbers, students take these. we believe that but we haven't grappled with how we can get these folks jobs. they are not going to get at the big corporations and less they have very good grades. and we can't necessarily, so far, it's not easy for them to establish they have the skills, especially if they don't have those
of -- used interchangeably. if the dividing line is famous not have a nuclear weapon and then it will become nearly impossible to manage because that means they can continue to enrich plutonium at three levels that define nuclear capability, delivery systems, instrument capability, and warheads. the delivery systems are not a subject of negotiation. the question is whether the enrichment capability gets eliminated. drawing a line at the weapons, the warhead development is not meaningful because from richmond to weapon, and our intelligence capability on that subject is so limited. negotiations are going on. the fact of bilateral negotiation between iran and the united states is a matter of grave concern to the sunni arab -- iranian nuclear capability, totally eliminated, where negotiations seem to be going, to establish some line beyond and richmond will not take place and the conventional wisdom and that is if you permission and richmond beyond a 5% level you are close to a military enrichment capability. so to negotiate with iran, and secondly, how do you handle the enrichment problem? on
us. >> there is a lot of movement in the direction. so are we in ten years going to have our first two years -- >> we are starting to see that at this university. >> date recourses mostly. >> what me comment on that. for the last monday and tuesday on a chair in ann arbor are a major national science foundation workshop bringing in the top people from stanford, mit, carnegie mellon involved in this as well as a number of other leaders in these areas. .. >> this is not the education we think of as a college education, meaning on a campus with learning communities, the broader experience, but there are certain aspects of learning that occur. there are other formats here. there's a lot of talk about what carnegie melon caughts the open learning model, the intelligent tutor. this is an ai intelligence based interactive situation. i -- ithica and other groups do behind trails on this and found out techniques that are not involved at all, you learn twice as deep and twice as fast in certain areas. the third area, i guess it's called interest game, for those who know anything about scienc
israel was hard. does he agree with me that the use of long range imported missiles by hamas capable of striking jerusalem has made this much were difficult to achieve? >> yes, absolutely. it is clear that the armory of rockets in gaza has changed since the time of operation, and although there is a longer range rockets, we seen them launch at tel aviv and at least in one case at jerusalem. of course that is an escalation of the threat to israel. but it only underlines the importance of taking forward all the work on a negotiated piece and settlement in the middle east so which has been supported across the house. >> in august this year in a report that gaza would be unlivable by 2020, 44% of posting in gaza -- [inaudible] what conversation has he had with counterparts recently on increasing basic humanitarian coming into gaza and that continues to increase? >> this is a constant part of discussions with israeli leaders. of course, we put the case for that, and, indeed, more than that, in saying not only that humanitarian relief is required but that the difference in more an open app
